What is jQuery?

jQuery is a cross-platform and lightweight Javascript library. It was developed to make it easier to use Javascript on a website. jQuery is one of the most popular Javascript frameworks available today.

jQuery simplifies many JavaScript and AJAX elements. It takes common programming tasks that might require lines and lines of code to program and turns them into ‘methods’ that can then be called on a website with a single line of code.

Here are a few reasons you might want to include jQuery in your website:

  • The jQuery library is free.
  • It works just about anywhere. jQuery is cross-browser, cross-platform and will work on browsers, mobile phones, and tablets.
  • jQuery elements can display even when javascript it disabled.
  • jQuery can create animated applications!
  • It’s SEO friendly.
  • It’s compliant with CSS3.
  • Since jQuery often uses less code, it can load more quickly.
